Matt Kienzle Pro Wheel NOW AVAILABLE!

We're very proud to introduce Matt Kienzle's first pro wheel! We took Matt's favorite secret 65mm slide wheels and dialed it in just for him. We started with his favorite urethane for leaving sugary lines, trimmed the edge of the wheel to the core for smoother slides, and chamfered that same edge for ease into slides. Throw that into the new Cosmic core, bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees and you've got one kick ass slide wheel.
